WASHINGTON Jan 21 About
Feb 1 the treasury department will re
sume the coinage of silver dollars and
continue until about 518000000 have
been coined When the present ad
ministration came into power there
were in the treasury about 29000000
in silver dollars coined from bullion
under the act of 1890 apd available for
the redemption of treasury notes is
sued in payment of the bullion pur
chased
Since August 1893 about 18000000
of these notes have been redeemed in
silver dollars and cancelled
The secretary of the treasury has
now decided to coin from the bullion
now on hand and purchased under the
act of 1890 about 18000000 which will
restore the amount of dollars in the
treasury to what it was on March 4
1S93 The average cost of the silver bul
lion purchased under the Sherman act
was HVz cents on the dollar which
leaves a gain of seignorage of 28M
cents on the dollar At this rate the
seignorage on the 18000000 to be
coined ould be 5130000 which will
be accounted for in the available cash
on hand increasing it by that amount
The order for the resumption of the
coinage at the mints at Philadelphia

WASHINGTON Jan 21The prediction
is freely made by members of the house
committee on foreign affairs that if the
Tironosed reaffirmation of the Monroe doc

allowed to rest quietly in the commit

a crisis

Senator Pughs concurrent resolution

parties to recognize silver by nominat

to its rehabilitation on a basis of 16 to
1 It is not necessary that adherents
of the proposed new party should al
ready have severed all connection with
the old parties but it is essential that
they be wIlling to do so should the
old parties fail to nominate candidates

to be a visit of inspection
A large number of additional man

The report has just reached here f
an episode of interest in connection
with the visit of the acting governor to
Bartica The streets of the town
were gaily decorated with bunting
foliage and flowers for several days
preceding the arrival of the official
visitor
Conspicious among the decorations
were many American flags A few
hours before the governor reached the
city Michael McTurk and Captain
Baker inspector of prisons arrived at
Bartica Some few minutes later not
a single American flag was visible in
the streets The sudden disappearance
of the Stars and Stripes caused com

I ADVERSE REPORT
Secretary Smith Against the Free
Homestead Bill
WASHINGTON Jan 31The house
committee on public lands has received
I from Secretary Smith a strong adverse
report against the free homestead bill
Commissioner Lamoreux of the gen
I eral land office in a report accompany
ing Secretary Smiths letter urges sev
eral reasons why the bill should not
pass and says
The payment of money considerations
for lands by settlers thereon in these
cases appears to be the foundation on
which the whole transaction between
them and the government was based
and without which the government would
not have entered into engagements with
the Indians by which the acquisition of
title by settlers was rendered possible
The purpose of the bill seems to be to
I repeal all the provisions of existing laws
under which homestead entries have been
made for public lands for which a cer
I tain once per acre is to be paid by the
entrymen
Large tracts of lands have been ac
quired through purchase from Indians
I
For some of this land the Indians have
already been paid by the government
and for other portions the government is
still responsible There are also abandoned
military reservations involved which
I have become valuable because of their
I location usually In settled communities
and persons entering them have had a
distinct understanding that they were

Colonel Byrnes was shown the state

The story has no foundation in fact

ALBANY N Y Jan 2LThe annual
session of the State Bar association
opened tonight in this city in the
presence of a large number of auditors
The address of the evening was de
livered by Hon Chauncey M Depew
on Patriotism and Jingoism the Law
yers Duty
The position taken by the speaker
was that the international war should
go the way of individual duels He
proposed that the lawyers of the coun
try and Great Britain address them
selves to the task of educating the peo
ple to the adoption of peaceful arbitra
tion in matters of dispute He said
Only one power keeps the nations of
Europe from instantly declaring war
The bankers and business men have
become the arbiters between nations
The only two nations which may be
said to be free from this thraldom be
cause of their wealth their commerce
and credit are the United States and
England
The events of the past few weeks
have demonstrated how easy it is to
arouse the fighting blood among our
own people A generation have come
upon the stage since the civil war
who are eager for battle There are
occasions when war is both right and
necessary and a nation must embark
upon it without counting the conse
quences but the issue of a battle is
never certain nor does the arbitrament
of war always end in right or justice
Now is the time for the profes
sion to perform a great work upon the
lines of the lawyers of the century
in promoting international arbitra
tion The principal dispute between
English speaking races which is agitat
ing the world calls for both practical
wisdom and legal acumen for its solu
tion There is no dissent in this coun
try from thi Monroe doctrine as pro
mulgated by President Monroe and
interpreted by Jefferson Madison Web
ster and Calhoun 1
Yet anyone who studies the Monroe
doctrine will see how in each indi
vidual case except where there is a
flagrant violation like the Frencn in
vasion of Mexico the applicable inter
pretation of it should be the subject
of judicial determination The presi
dents message to congress takes a
novel view of the principle If there is I
a dispute as to the boundary line be
tween a South American republic and
a European power no matter how in
significant the territory involved or
how remotely it may interest us we
must demand that the two govern
ments arbitrate the line and if they
refuse we must find out as best we I
can which line is correct and enforce it
by war If however pending our in
quiry the two parties agree we have
no further rights cir duties This seems
to surrender the doctrine if Venezuela
or Brazil chooses to sell a portion of
its land A slight extension of the
principle compels us to assume a pro I
tectorate over all those republics
Such a policy the speaker said i
would require an immense standing
army The United States is the only
nation so situated that it can with
honor and safety move upon the path
way of peace for an international
court of arbitration
We have no fear of the countries to
the south or north of us he said
and all the transports and navies of
the world could not land upon our
shores an army which could march 100
miles from the sea coast and ever re
turn to their ships Secure in our iso
lation supreme in our resources un
equalled in our reserves and free from
dangeroUs neighbors we occupy among
the nations of the globe a position so
exalted and safe that to compare us
with other countries would be absurd
The statesman or the politician who
really fears for the safety of this
country is a fool The statesman or
politician who does not fear because
he knows better and yet who preaches
of our weakness and our vulnerability
is a demagogue and he insults the in
telligence of the American people
This independence of location Dr
Depew said eminently fitted the
United States for the leader in the
great peace movement The business
session will be held tomorrow
The session will close tomorrow
afternoon with addresses and a re
ception by Governor Morton
RUPTURE IMMINENT

MANUFACTURERS
NATIONAL ASSOCIATION TO rEET
IN NEW YOHK
Senator Warner Miller Talks of the
Action That May Be Taken on
Several Important Questions
CHICAGO Jan 21United States
Senator Warner Miller arrived in this
city last night to attend the meeting of
the national association of the manu
I l
facurers of the United States of which
organization he is president In an
interview he said
The object of the association is to
get the manufacturers of the country
in touch with each other and the in
dustrial life of the nation and to create
a public sentiment to induce congress
to establish the policy of reciprocity
and to foster the fast mall and com
munication with the South American
points whose trade ought to be ours
We must have mail and rapid com
munication with these countries or we
can never have their business
The Manufacturers association is
also interested in great international
waterways and communications and
in the building of the Nicaragua canal
which is a necessity for modern com
mercial intercourse between the At
lantic and Pacific coasts as well as be
tween China Japan South America
and the Sandwich islands It is also a
necessity for our national defense
When the canal is built it will practic
ally obviate the necessity for a
double navy to guard our Atlantic and
Pacific coats for it will not only con
nect both but decrease the space be
tween them 10000 miles
The association will take the ground
that the Nicaragua canal should be
owned and operated by the United
States As to the completion of that
enterprise there can be no doubt I
know that the canal will be built and
if the United States does not build it
Europe will and there will be another
pregnant cause of war when national
troubles and jealousies arise The
present Venezuelan dispute emphasized
the necessity for the canal Money
for its construction could have been
secured long ago for Europe if our
national legislature had not been talk
ing and passing resolutions about its
ownership If congress does not do
anything this session we will feel per
fectly free to look elsewhere for the
means to complete the link between
the oceans If the report of the com
mission sent to examine is such as has
been given out in the papers we are
prepared to prove its falsity We can
prove by the best engineers in this
country and abroad that our work is
feasible

ator is authority for the above state
ment and for the information that

FIELD DENIES IT
WASHINGTON Jan 21When Jus
tice Field was asked today regarding
the report that he would retire at the
end of this term he said
No such statement has been author
ized by me Of course a man at my
time of life may retire from the bench
any time If my health should not
permit me to attend to my bench pro
perly I should not hesitate to leave
the bench but as long as I could at
tend to these duties with ease I have
no intention of retiring At present
my health is very good Should I
again be ill as < I was last year I should
not hesitate to retire These stories
in regard to my intention of retiring
have been circulated repeatedly but
without any authority
It is generally understood that Jus
tice Field is ambitious to exceed the
term of service of Chief Justice Mar

years on the supreme bench constitute
the largest term of service in the his
tory of the court Tustice Field was
